Who says Obama wasn’t paying attention to his Mentor ‘Franklin Marshall Davis ‘Hugo Pitted 'poor Venezuelans against prosperous' sounds much like Obama’s agenda!!
exactly. take out Chavez from this news story, substitute "The One" and who does it sound like?

__________s legacy of economic nationalism and authoritarian rule will haunt __________ and its neighbors for years to come.

A country that was once one of the few democracies — albeit an imperfect __________ now lies at the bottom of hemispheric rankings on institutional quality and political and civil liberties.

Ironically,_________ used elections, referenda and legal technicalities to destroy vital democratic institutions, such as the separation of powers and the independence of media — when the free press acted more like the government press.

__________ called it “Socialism of the 21st century,” but its main features — messianic leadership, state control of key industries and political repression — more closely resemble fascism.

__________s economy is one of his greatest casualties. The Fraser Institute’s latest Economic Freedom of the World report ranks __________ as the least free economy of 144 nations studied. The inflation rate is among the highest in the world.

The concrete facts are grimmer still: The country suffers from chronic shortages of electricity and basic goods. Its roads, bridges and other infrastructure are literally falling apart after years of neglect, while _______’s industrial and agricultural capacity has been decimated by repeated expropriations and nationalizations.

The country now imports 70 percent of its food. The currency was devalued by 32 percent after a government spending spree leading up to last October’s presidential election left a staggering fiscal deficit of 8.5 percent of GDP.

And that might not be enough: On the black market, the currency is trading at a third the new official rate against the dollar, so an even larger devaluation may come soon.

__________ wouldn’t have been able to pursue his populist agenda if it weren’t for raising taxes on the successful, which some estimate accounted for $________ in revenues during his tenure. About a third went for social programs — hence his popularity among the poor and low information voters. But the rest was squandered in dubious investments or went to swell the bank accounts of a new privileged class called the “______”— so named because they’ve prospered tremendously under __________s so-called redistribution of wealth and reparations campaign.

Tens of billions also went to foster his regional ambitions — financing extreme left-wing political parties, governments and even armed insurgencies and attacks by drones.

Still, the menace of leftist populism in __________ will be greatly contained by the absence of __________s wallet and charisma and by the visible mess he left behind. Countries such as Canada that have chosen democratic capitalism are faring much better and represent a far more attractive model.

In the final analysis, history will remember __________ as an authoritarian empty suit whose policies set back __________s development and institutions by decades. The faster __________ turns the page, the better.

Now "this" could get interesting.

BPI (Beef Products Inc) the creators and manufacturers of finely textured beef aka pink slime have launched a lawsuit against Diane Sawyer, ABC News and certain others in the employ of ABC.

The suit requests $1.2 billion in damages which amounts to about 1/5th of the broadcasters profit during the year in which it broke the exclusive report. Interestingly BPI remains in business although it's had to shutter a couple of it's plants and operates at about 1/5th of it's former profitability.

The suit seems fairly crafted and will put the broadcasting company in a position where it must defend baseless hostile reporting.

Inside the 'Kool Koast Kamp': Brochure shamelessly advertises the Ku Klux Klan Texas summer resort where white supremacists went to relax

Cool, so Restful. No work whatsoever. No Drudgery. No worry. The Fiery Cross guards you at nights and an officer of the law, the same Christian sentiment, guards carefully all portals,' it advertises while hoping to compare itself to the shores of Atlantic City and Palm Beach.

The four-page brochure promises guests at a dollar per day everything from swimming and fishing, to 'watermelon parties' under shaded beaches
The DAYS WHEN DEMOCRATS WERE HONEST ABOUT WHO THEY ARE
Gradually the growing violence attributed to the Klan caused resentment, however, and with it a number of anti-Klan organizations in 1922 across the state.

Reacting, Dallas''imperial wizard' or national leader Hiram Wesley Evans worked to change its image.

Among his efforts he worked to diminish the use of Klan regalia except at Klan-sponsored events and increased political chairs.

From the,“you never hear about that from the media” file – Those “Evil, Rich People” that Democrats are always wailing about are actually – Democrats.

While I don’t agree in referring to rich people as “Evil”, Democrats are often making such accusations. But what most people don’t realize is that the Top 3 “richest” people in the country are all Democrats. This list includes: Bill Gates, Warren Buffett & Larry Ellison are all Democrats. Together, they are worth $126 Billion Dollars.

An analysis of the Top 20 Richest People in America (from Forbes Top 100) reveals that a full 60% are actually Democrats. Furthermore, if you look at it from a “family” point of view and not as individuals, that ratio widens even further to: 25% Republican / 75% Democrat.

You'd do better as a comedian.
Well, first of all, can you go back any further in finding something Boehner did that everyone used to do at one time?

Yes, he admitted to passing out a half dozen checks on behalf of the tobacco lobbyists and regretted having done it on the floor but also said it was something they were trying to stop and something he would never do again.

But the facts about tobacco being a major export in the early beginnings of our country wasn't really meant to be funny.

Wasn't sure if you were more upset about the checks or the tobacco.

Where were you when Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Condi, etc., were making their lying run-up to getting over 4000 of our best and brightest dead, along with 100,000 innocents and the country's economy? Moistly clapping your fat little hands for Orally, no doubt...

Idiot.
Those reprenetative in the past of such such twisted and warped perceptional behavioral disorders would actually be better represented by the definition of-

im·be·cile (mb-sl,-sl)
n.
1. A stupid or silly person; a dolt.
2. A person whose mental acumen is well below par.
3. A person of moderate to severe mental retardation having a mental age of from three to seven years and generally being capable of some degree of communication and performance of simple tasks under supervision. The term belongs to a classification system no longer in use and is now considered offensive.
adj. also im·be·cil·ic (mb-slk)

(as in too imbecilic to even realize how imbecilic they are...hm aka NUTcases!)
